Default WC PLAYOFFS RD 1: (2)OKC THUNDER vs (7)MEM GRIZZLIES

STARTERS:

OKC

Russell Westbrook
Thabo Sefolosha
Kevin Durant
Serge Ibaka
Kendrick Perkins

MEM

Mike Conley
Courtney Lee
Tayshaun Prince
Zach Randolph
Marc Gasol

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

OKC

Reggie Jackson
Derek Fisher
Caron Butler
Nick Collison

MEM

Nick Calathes
Tony Allen
Mike Miller
Kosta Koufos

Key Matchups:

This is another tough series to judge because the Thunder are the best team in the NBA at their best, and an average playoff team at their worst. One who's capable of being upset against a team like MEM who has played them extremely tough in the past. I think if MEM gives more minutes to Miller, and limits the corpse of Tayshaun Prince to -15 mpg, and can get Westbrook into his crazy chucker mode by trying to push KD out and front him and thus running enough clock to where Westbrook has to make more decisions with the ball, then they have a good shot of winning this series. Ultimately though, talent will win out.

PREDICTION:

OKC IN 6

OKC in 6. If Memphis gets lucky they could extend it to game 7.

Going with OKC in 7. I believe Memphis will give them problems like they have in the past, though I hoping the Grizzles come out on top.

I'm missing all the basketball today, all of it

My sister dropped off the pack, as I got chosen for babysitting duties during the opening day of the playoffs. My family is so considerate and full of love and understanding.

Yup, Memphis played good for 1 quarter. Thunder played good for 3.
(I was able to sneak away for the last 15 minutes of this game)

It's almost impossible to stop OKC when they build this type of momentum.
